An independent investigation has turned up zero evidence of unethical behavior by Flint, MI Mayor Karen Weaver, who had been accused of misusing money designated to help with the water crisis.

“I know the allegations were just that, allegations and they weren’t true,” Weaver told local news station WNEM.

Attorney Brendon Basiga suggested Weaver did nothing illegal when it came to accepting donations during a fundraiser.

“I was provided bank statements with regards to the Friends of Karen Weaver Fund as well as the Karen for Flint Fund. Neither bank statements indicate any questionable deposits and the donation checks that were made [were] supported by copies of the checks themselves,” Basiga said.

It was an email by former city administrator Natasha Henderson that led to the speculation that Weaver was attempting to funnel contributions for the Flint water crisis into a private account.

However, with the validation of her innocence, Weaver said she is moving on.

“I’m glad the investigation has happened and I’m glad it’s over,” she said.
